Editor’s Note

ThomasPicChange is finally coming to Sweden: 2017 will see the draft for a new legislation for the gaming industry. What will it mean for Sweden’s national lottery, Svenskaspel? And how will it work for local and international operators? What will be the requirements to comply with? With the draft expected to come by March, the iGaming Forum will be the ideal place to hear everything there is to know – and start debating it, before the final proposal due by the end of 2017.

The event will tackle another important issue: are operators challenging themselves enough to optimize and innovate their businesses? With the market converging through M&A’s to create mega powers, will startups struggle to thrive, and even survive, in a sector that needs them as a source of innovation? And what of the role of technology – what will be the next big thing? Is the industry ready for true innovation, whether it is in terms of customer experience through virtual reality, or truly personalized product offerings through data analytics and machine learning?

The event will also feature some important debates on sports integrity, growth markets, innovation, esports and much more!

I look forward to welcoming you in Stockholm this April.
